Gigabyte UD Pro Series SSD Released – See Features, Specs and Price

Gigabyte has decided to enter the SSD market with their new Gigabyte UD PRO SSD Series. Gigabyte’s SSD will be based on Toshiba BiCS3 3D TLC NAND flash technology paired with a Phison controller; and will feature a 2.5″ form factor for SATA 6.0Gbps interface. The company will be releasing a 256GB and 512GB variant; with advertised speeds of up to 530MB/s sequential read and up to 500MB/s sequential write speed. It will also feature external DDR3 DRAM cache and will support features such as TRIM and SMART. More features from the official news below.

GIGABYTE Introduces UD PRO Series SSDs

GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, presents its UD PRO series SATA Interface SSDs with built-in DDR3 RAM, adhering to GIGABYTE standards for high quality, ultra-durable products and providing users with a superior product experience. Newly introduced GIGABYTE UD PRO series SSDs include both 256 GB and 512 GB capacity options and come with a clean, sleek design featuring a black and gray exterior with the product name engraved in white. Not only they do utilize high quality 3D NAND Flash memory, they also come with a high-speed, low power DDR3L buffer cache to accelerate the read/write speeds of the SSD, fulfilling the GIGABYTE standard for high quality products.

In comparison to standard SSDs without built-in buffer cache, GIGABYTE UD PRO series SSDs are twice as effective even when its flash memory is at full capacity. At the same time, the random write (IOPS) is up to 16 times faster than non-buffer cache versions. Additionally, integrated DDR3L RAM allows users to make use of the entire flash memory capacity without sacrificing performance quality or storage capacity. It’s important to note that GIGABYTE has thoroughly tested the UD PRO series SSDs by implementing them on a full range of motherboards with their respective chipsets to evaluate both the functionality as well as durability of the SSDs. Through stress tests under high temperatures and other extreme conditions, the UD PRO series SSDs not only passed the tests but performed flawlessly.

According to Jackson Hsu, Deputy Director of the GIGABYTE Channel Solutions Product Development Division: “SATA interface SSDs are mainstream and have a considerable development history. The challenge is to develop a product of exceptional quality that stands out from the rest,”. ” GIGABYTE UD PRO series SDDs are a testament to our strict adherence to producing high quality products. With DDR3L RAM, 3D NAND Flash memory, 256 GB or 512 GB storage capacity selections, UD PRO series SDDs offer users a high performance, high stability, and high capacity product choice, without sacrificing flash memory or performance.”

Gigabyte UD Pro SSD Price and Availability

GIGABYTE UD PRO series SSDs come with a 3 Year or up to 200 TBW warranty, and will be available soon on the market. Hopefully, towards the end of this month. The 512GB is expected to be priced at around $120 USD, while the 256GB variant will be priced at around $69 USD. For more details, please visit the official GIGABYTE website.
